Sensational Haiku Wednesday

Welcome to “Sensational Haiku Wednesday!”

Click here for info and background on this weekly event!

The basics:

Haiku is simple! It is 3 non-rhyming lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively (a great way to use your fingers!)

This week’s theme is: Wish(es)

    Turn back time, restart
    Another lifetime, and choice
    Might have been different

Now playing, Jenn’s head:
♫ Dream is a wish your heart makes ♪
♬When you’re fast asleep…♫

    For just one moment
    Forget all your commitments
    Just focus on me?

If wishes came true…
Brief, utter utopia
Then world-wide chaos

Folks, a quick note about comments: I do visit everyone, but a few of you don’t have Name/URL enabled on your blogs, and I CAN’T comment in that case. Take a moment to enable that, will you? There are other ways to combat spam and still allow people with their own domains to leave their homage to your greatness ;)

Next week’s theme: Scent (your favourite scent, etc.)

Note: Nothing makes me happier than to see new people getting “hooked on haiku”! Keep it going to make it to the Hooked on Haiku List (if you’re not listed and should be, please let me know!)

To participate in this week’s event, please use the following code in your post on your own blog (if you don’t have a blog, post your Haiku as a comment):

  1. Oh, I get it: This is one of those be-careful-what-you-wish-for haiku, right? :-)

  2. Becca says:

    I love your 3rd haiku! I feel like that a lot :/

  3. Broot says:

    Gee thanks a lot, Jenn
    Guess what’s playing in my head now?
    “a wish your heart makes.”

    I know my best wish
    And I’m posting about it
    with tomorrow’s post.

    I wish I knew why
    people want to know about
    yams and sweet taters.

    (Lots of people viewing that post!!)

    I dream of wishes
    That will fill up my son’s soul
    through the course of life

  5. JennyMac says:

  6. Nice verses Jenn, and the quotes on the images are great too!

  7. I hope all your wishes come true on your upcoming birthday!

    PS Remember you’re always appreciate, loved and wanted here, Wednesdays wouldn’t be the same without you.

  8. If only wishes that bring blessings to everyone concerned come true, there won’t be chaos.Just lots of smiling faces!

  9. Madeleine says:

    I’ll send a wish for special you
    For lots more lovely haiku. ;O)

  10. I wish I could write
    a lovely haiku today —
    well, wishes won’t write.

    Here’s my latest Limerick-Off — Fair Limerick.

    Can EVERYONE be happy at once??

  12. Hello, all,

    I don’t often haiku, but the moment I saw the prompt, I knew there was something there for me.

    You are all so talented at this delicate form! Thanks for letting me play… Peace, Amy Barlow Liberatore
